After testing virtually all the different brands of straw pellets on the market for their suitability for mushroom growing, these starw pellets are by far the best. They have excellent rehydration and moisture holding properties, taking around an hour to obtain full absorption.
Rehydration Guidelines: 2.5 times the pellets weight in water, e.g. 500g pellets to 1250ml of water, mix around and leave to stand in a closed container for 1 hour
Spawning or Inoculation Rate: 250g to 500g of sawdust spawn per 1kg of dry pellets (the more spawn used, the quicker colonisation will be and there will be less chance of contamination).
